Part of: Music
Performing their latest audiovisual sampling extravaganza, duo Addictive TV bring their Orchestra of Samples project to Chester. Take over 200 musicians from nearly 30 countries and imagine that they never met but are sampled, combined and reimagined to create new music of extraordinary unique fusions crossing multiple styles and cultures.
Six years in the making, the pair filmed improvised recording sessions with musicians around the world, then ingeniously sampled and spliced them together to create the project. The result is a digital supergroup of international artists who never met, but play together on-screen. Orchestra of Samples features top musicians in their field and documents a range of unusual localised instruments on recordings made in Brazil, Kazakhstan, Egypt, Senegal, Colombia, across Europe and even Bhutan in the Himalayas! Performing with Addictive TV on stage will be the incredible Iranian percussionist Arian Sadr from Manchester’s award-winning Haymanot Tesfa Trio.
